I saw this recently on Washington Post – Powerball mystery: Someone in this tiny town won $731 million. Now everyone wants a piece of it.: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/powerball-jackpot-maryland-lonaconing-winner/2021/06/16/501a958c-caed-11eb-81b1-34796c7393af_story.html. Much longer article. I live in one of the few states where lottery winners can remain anonymous. I rarely play and I would definitely go with the anonymous option if I won.

LONACONING, MD. — There haven’t been a lot of big wins in this little town tucked between gentle green mountains in Maryland’s far western reaches. Coal brought work, then took it away. The railroad meant prosperity, then stopped running. They made glass here, and then they didn’t.
These days, the line of cars at the First Assembly of God food giveaway is so long that the volunteers split each box into two smaller portions to feed more families.
